spain, france, asia minor, north africa and egypt. transportation expert ross hassig. it was closer is terms of the cost of transportation to get to egypt than it was to get a hundred miles inland in italy. you couldn't bring food from a hundred miles inland to rome, because even with carts, even with oxen, it simply cost too much. so rome was able to tap into the production of other areas because it was able to use ships where the cost of transportation was extremely low. keach: but roman seagoing merchant ships carrying upwards of a thousand tons were too large to navigate the tiber river, so cargos were unloaded onto smaller vessels downriver at the port city of ostia. ostia was once a bustling commercial city, with shops and restaurants... villas and apartment houses for merchants and shippers... theaters, parks and enormous warehouses crammed with every possible commodity. archaeologist amanda claridge. it's clear that the merchants, the many, many thousands of people involved in the supply of the city of rome who did base themselves in ostia -- all the transient ships' captain

think if it was france it would be perfect. with the style. i don't see a problem. >> i don't but i think that in advocating american business against european ambassadors who spend a consider an poke of theiportionof their time on it d someone in business themselves can be effective. neil: no doubt. we were talking about. joe kennedy, -- john kennedy's father got the ambassadorship to england to get off of fdr's back for helping him. so, i know how these are plumb assignmented and handed out like candy. but should and we have a better system for this? the same way we do say, we put cabinet officials through the grill, ambassadorships go through easily, except yours. >> it must have been because of my large contribution to george w. bush campaign. neil: you know what i mean. should there be some standards? >> well i think there are. i think that political appointees in both parties get a bad wrap, there are failures, they are the one that get the attention, but having people around the world who are sensitive to the president who put them there and can speak with authority when they
growth. france for 40 years has grown numb to% real gdp and 8% unemployment. they think it is normal. the good news is america doesn't think it is normal and you have to keep pounding the table that this isn't normal. it is not good. so do i. the only way to get back up to good growth is to cut the size of the government. i still believe we have eight to ten years even on the crazy course we are on right now before we are anything like one of these european countries. this is still an amazingly powerful entrepreneurial place. i am betting on the entrepreneur and even though the government keeps making a mistake after mistake after mistake. >> i like the optimism but i have to disagree with you in terms of fourth quarter growwh. most economists say it we are doing ok now in the third quarter we did at least but the holiday quarter, the santa claus rally everybody spending money for the holidays but most economists save gdp will come down in the current quarter but you say it will go up. i don't know if i believe you. >> i think gdp will be weak in queue 4 probably under 1/2%. it could
in switzerland, netherlands, sweden, france, germany do better than us? how is that possible? because of you, washington. it's because of you. we've been kept back all because of you. second, before our politicians stepped in with their intransigence and anger, we were about to have an explosion in earnings. retail was as strong as i've seen it in a decade, autos back incredibly robust. and that's just the beginning. because all the pent up demand. we're running short of office buildings, shopping centers, apartments, homes, these are the hiring sectors, all this blather about helping the small businessman of subchapter "s" for private and middle class, you want to help them? give them a deal, any deal, just get out of our way for heaven sakes. our country is starting to get so competitive, again, that businesses building things over there now want to build them here. tim cook tells brian williams that his company's going to make macs in this country. we're better than china. meanwhile our energy costs are plummeting courtesy of the cleaner, cheaper fuel, natural gas. so cheap here it can be
